Obama To Queen

“Liz, did  you hear the one about the priest, the rabbi, and the Kenyan who walked into an Irish Pub?” 

President O’bummer, (we’ll add the apostrophe for him going forward) started his European vacation with a stop at an Irish Pub and dutifully downed a pint of Guinness beer to score political points, while proclaiming, “ I have come home!”

Yeah, right! He’ll probably wear a shamrock on his lapel going forward once he leaves the United Kingdom, but for now the President is cozying up to the Queen, and the Queen is going all out to ingratiate herself to him with 21 gun, 42 gun, and 61 gun salutes, respectfully. No American President, not even Ronald Reagan, received so Royal a reception.

Why so much attention for this Clown when he didn’t even get a invitation to THE WEDDING?

 No doubt this adulation is payback for glossing over the British Petroleum oil spill that has devastated the Gulf Of Mexico. BP got off cheap on that fiasco, by using chemicals that dispersed the oil and caused it to settle at the bottom of the Gulf: chemicals that are highly toxic to human beings. Eventually, these chemicals, and the oil, will manifest itself. The $20 billion dollars that BP paid is chicken feed compared to the damage that they have caused. $100 billion would be more like it.

You see, the Queen is a VERY BIG investor in British Petroleum; and British Banks.

By all rights BP should be belly up or at least a skeleton of its former self. It’s not. Its business as usual for BP. The Gulf Disaster was just a blip on its profit margin and the American President ordered the attack on Gaddaffi to prevent the nationalization of Libyan oil, which Gaddaffi had publicly stated was his intent prior to the "Arab Spring"; again benefiting the Crown Jewel of the Queen’s portfolio: British Petroleum.

We will not mention here the tens of billions of dollars received by British Banks from the $787 billion “Stimulus Program”, aka known as the “Bank Bailout” that was paid for with American taxpayer funds. We would not be so crass as to suggest a “quid pro quo” by the Queen.

I mean after all, just invite the Clown to dinner, throw the Clown a party, and pretend he is your new best friend. It’s a small price to pay for the many hundreds of billions of dollars that the Americans pay to protect British interests around the world.

And break out the best champagne. After all, the American taxpayers paid for it didn’t they?

Editor's Note: The Royal Bank of Scotland borrowed $50 billion of American taxpayer funds at the height of the banking crisis at .05%; while Barclays Plc borrowed  $15 billion of American taxpayer funds from the Federal Reserve at the same rate. If they had not received these funds, Great Britain would be broke, its major banks insolvent. And the Queen's pocketbook? Well, lets just say that Bonnie Prince Charles would no longer receive an allowance and he would have to find a real job.

Hawking On Heaven: Fairy Tale

Stephen Hawking, a noted mathematician who has headed the same post for 30 years at Cambridge University as did Sir Isaac Newton, is now Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at Cambridge. Recently this distinguished mathematician, physicist, Professor, and Department Chair, who is suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease, told the UK Guardian in an interview:

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or after life for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."

Professor Hawking believes that God does not exist. For one so physically handicapped, it is perhaps understandable that he does not believe in God, and sees no evidence of Him in the Universe.

Yet, imagine one of mankind’s most heralded and brightest scientists, who specializes in Cosmology, failing to see any evidence of God in the Universe. It boggles the mind, really. This is a man whose insight into the diversity of life and complexity of Creation has few peers, yet in all of nature’s wonder, he does not see nature’s God.

How pitiful.

MENSA is not knocking on my door, yet it is easy for me to see the Hand of God moving in all of our lives every day. He is everywhere present. When I quiet myself and go within myself, the Spirit of God is there to greet me; encourage me, inspire me, inform me, educate me, and sustain me: bringing hope when there is despair, strength when I am winded, direction when I am confused, even health when I am sick.

My god is an awesome God.

For a man so physically confined as Dr. Hawking is now, without the distractions of a physically active life, one would think it would be easy for an intellect so great to find the Spirit of God that dwells within every living soul; dwelling in his own.

How ironic it is, that a man who has devoted his life to understanding the manifestation of the physical universe in all its majesty, should have so little insight into his own existence. For those who follow Dr. Hawking and believe his opinions carry some gravitas, it is clearly a case of the blind leading the blind.

Dr. Hawking, you cannot understand the nature of nature without understanding your own. You, more than other men, should understand that you are a spiritual being first: a physical man second.

Once you commanded my respect and admiration. Today you have won my pity and my prayers. When your computer ceases to function and your physical restraints are unfettered, come visit me. You will discover a whole new realm of nature to explore, as your consciousness will survive your passing, and your personality will find a new expression of life to explore.

Then come, visit me.

The Death Of Bin Laden

Congratulations to Seal Team Six! Their courage and tactical skill has eliminated an enemy of America and a threat to the American people. They can be proud of their operation, and Americans can be proud of them; proving the point to all of our adversaries, anywhere in the world:  “You can run but you cannot hide!”    Not forever anyway.

Although this operation has culminated in the death of Osama Bin Laden, it does not signal an end to Al-Qaeda. Its operatives are still lurking in the shadows, caves, back allies, and spider holes around the world waiting for America to drop its guard. We won’t.

We understand that we are engaged in nothing less than a clash between two civilizations: one a multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-cultural society where all individuals are offered an opportunity to express their individuality and pursue their personal happiness within the rule of law; and the other a monolithic radicalism where women are chattel and anyone who is not one of them is an infidel deserving of death.
The struggle may be long but the outcome is sure. Much like the death of Osama Bin Laden.
